NSF International?s Global Food Safety Certification Division Earns Five-Star Rating from British Retail Consortium (BRC)

NSF International’s Global Food Safety Certification Division Earns Five-Star Rating from British Retail Consortium (BRC)











NSF International


Ann Arbor, Mich. (PRWEB) August 09, 2011

NSF International’s Food Safety Division has earned the highest rating from the British Retail Consortium (BRC), developer of the BRC global food safety standards for food, packaging, storage and distribution. This excellent five-star rating confirms NSF’s reputation as a leading certifier to the global food safety standards, having certified more than 28,000 farms and facilities.

NSF is committed to helping companies throughout the global food supply chain strengthen their quality assurance programs. In 2009, NSF International became the first North American certification body to earn ANSI accreditation for BRC standards and has become the largest certifier to BRC worldwide and SQF in the U.S. Many of the leading global retail and foodservice companies now require certification of their suppliers against these Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)*-benchmarked standards to help strengthen food safety practices.

For the first time, BRC published the key performance indicators (KPI) ratings of each certification body from January – June 2011 in their directory, which highlights NSF International’s five-star rating. The BRC measures each certification body on the following KPIs every six months: Audit Report Writing Quality, Compliance to the BRC Scheme & Standard Protocol Requirements, Auditor Registration, Data Submission, Commitment and Communication.

“BRC works closely with our certification bodies to ensure the most effective and consistent use of the BRC Global Standards,” said John Kukoly, Senior Technical Marketing Representative in North America for BRC. “A rigorous set of key performance indicators are used to measure feedback and continually improve the performance of our partners in assessing certified companies. These measures, the most rigorous in the industry, ensure that those certification bodies (able to perform BRC certification audits) are held to exacting expectations and standards themselves. When a certification body receives a five-star rating, such as NSF International, this puts them at the very top performance level within the BRC program.”

“NSF International has grown into the largest certifier to BRC worldwide, and SQF in the U.S., because we’ve continued to focus on quality and meeting the expectations of our customers, accreditation bodies and standard’s owners,” said Robert Prevendar, Director of Food Safety Certification Systems for NSF International. “I am very proud of our auditors and operations team for placing us in the top five percent with our score of 100, which helps us fulfill NSF’s mission of protecting and improving human health worldwide.”
